Stuff White People Like

This is hilarious: Stuff White People Like.

Similar to many people who left comment on the site, my first impression was this is more a list of “stuff yuppies like.” But then if you think about what makes into the trend that yuppie follows, white people do have a lot to do with it. Besides, it is more fun this way.

My favorite line so far is in #27. Marathons

Also worth nothing, more competitive white people prefer triathlons because Kenyans can’t afford $10,000 specialty bicycles.

  1. The list is funny and the marathon item especially so. But keep in mind that Kenyan runners don’t just appear out of the back roads of Eldoret fully formed stars. Body type, lifestyle, diet, and habits may give someone an awesome potential. But you need access to the best coaching the world has to offer, opportunities to build experience, and have to put in a lot of hard work and a lot of smart work. There’s a critical mass of potential, talent, inve$tment, and dreams in Kenya.

    So the 10k for a bike seems like a lot. But think how much it costs to afford say an Olympic, Commonwealth, World track and field, or even a Bay to Breakers championship. More than 10k.

    The amazing thing about the US is that the average slob can set his sight on some target, pull the money together, and go try it. Could be triathlons, could be travel, flying a plane, etc. The US is simply wealthy.
